Produced from the same long, natural fermentation and traditional Pot Still marks as its 46% ABV sibling, the 60% Overproof expression displays a very bold, yet balanced character, and a powerful aromatic profile.
Full of ripe tropical fruit, phenolic notes and an underlying spice, this is a great sipping expression to sit, savour and enjoy.
Nose - Roasted banana and pineapple lead. Gentle clove and nutmeg follow, along with a touch of expressed citrus peel and candied lemon zest. Barley sugar, crunchy caramel and spun sugar develop, along with rich butterscotch.
Palate - Intense fruit: pineapple, apple, pear, mango and papaya stewed down into a thick jam. Clove and cinnamon notes build, with buttery pastry and darker notes of liquorice. There’s a gentle hint of coal smoke hiding at the bottom.
Finish - Big spice and tarred oak. That fades to reveal butterscotch and mint.
